's his job to stand up and tell the truth. and when he says we can raise spending for defense back to the pre-sequester level or for domestic, that is just evidence that we're going in the wrong direction. we can easily live with the sequester. it's a washington beltway lie that we can't live with $600 billion of outlays for defense, 50% more than we had in 2000 and we've had no new industrial enemies come after us since then that we can't live with 600 billion in domestic discretionary spending. again, 200 billion more than bill clinton left in real dollars today's dollars. and i don't think he was starving. >> in any deal we see out of ryan and patty murray a joke? >> it's a total joke. and i would hope that at least some of the people on the progressive side would understand if they don't get at entitlement reform and revenue raising now it's going to be far worse later. and the republicans on the tea party side would be right to reject this deal because it's nothing but a beltway scam. >> bloomer surveillance jargon alert there. david stockman using the word progressive. i beli

tensions. >> guest: china has developed an air defense identification which the administration has told our military to ignore and the faa to bring into effect so if you run a commercial airliner you have to take this into account and respond to the chinese. i'm not sure exactly how that works. our military side is not recognizing that. china will try to resort itself in the south china sea. i think we all knew this was happening. they wanted to expand and that is what is happening right now. they are going to push further and a little bit further and a little bit further. every time and this is once again much harder than the iran deal. there's a huge part of our economy and they are becoming more westernized and mort capitalistic while at the same time our military in building the military up and away where it's purely targeted at the american military. they are building their military up in a protective way against everybody. they are building specific weapon systems that would take out america -- >> host: how should the united states respond? >> guest: by not recognizing it read the def
unexpected come to his defense. congressman tom cotton. it all started after he released this ad on his face. >> i'm not ashamed to say that i believe in god and i believe in his word. the bible teaches us no one has all the answers. only god does. neither political party is always right. this is my compass. my north star. it gives me comfort and guidance to do what's best for arkansas. i'm mark pryor and i approved this message because this is who i am and what i believe. >> the national republican senatorial committee attacked pryor for the ad, noting that last year he said the bible is really not a rule book for political issues. the committee's communications director wrote so is the bible mark pryor's compass providing the guidance to do what's best or is it not a good rule book for political issues and rules in the senate. guess it's which mark pryor you ask. they write that is an incredibly bizarre and offensive e-mail from the press secretary. we should all agree that america is better off when the public officials in both parties have the humility to seek guidance from god. marco ru

the department of defense was run as efficiently as this. our deficit would be much lower. but among snap households with at least one working age nondisabled adult, more than half work. more than half work. and more than 80% work in the year before or after receiving snap. now, the legislation that the house republican leadership rammed through this congress and is now part of a negotiation on the farm bill, would cut the program by close to $40 billion. that would result in nearly four million americans losing access to snap next year, including working families with children, seniors, and veterans. nearly 170,000 veterans would lose their benefits. in addition, 210,000 children and these families would also lose free school meals. these cuts would come on top of the significant benefit reduction already experienced by all snap recipients as a result of the american recovery act moneys running out. and i would say to my colleagues that cut that went into effect on november 1 means is that the average family of four would see a reduction of about $36 per month in their snap benefit. we a
